Have my friends from Bush 2000 forgotten what it was we were fighting for? We didn’t work for a perfect man, but we did work for man who could honestly say, “I believe in tolerance, not in spite of my faith, but because of it. I believe in a God who calls us not to judge our neighbors but to love them. I believe in grace because I’ve seen it, and peace because I’ve felt it, and forgiveness because I’ve needed it.”
How can anyone who was moved by that now support a man who calls himself a Christian, but says he never asked God for forgiveness because he never had the need.
To those who supported George W. Bush with me and now support Donald Trump, I say: This is your choice. It’s not about who Donald Trump is, but about who you are. Does pledging your allegiance and support for this man actually make you feel better about yourself and the country? I don’t believe it. I refuse to believe that each of you are that shallow, that each of you have such a nihilistic view of public life that you can feel good about this choice.
